Review for The Terry Farrell Firefighters Scholarship Fund Inc, Wantagh, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Terry Farrell Fund is a non-profit organization which gives back so much to the Fire Service and the members who serve in Fire Departments, whether be it paid or volunteer. This fund was established after the tragic events of the 9/11 attacks, and it serves to help keep the legacy of a brave firefighter alive in doing what he loved to do. Terry was a member of FDNY Rescue 4 as well as an Asst. Chief of the Dix Hills Fire Dept. He was also an Ex-Chief of the Hicksville Fire Dept. The fund has done wonderful things across this nation and has several chapters in different states which help out local firefighters by collecting equipment and distributing to those in need. The members also participate in many local charities and provide scholarships to children of firefighters.
They also participate in the annual United States Marine Corps “Toys for Tots” toy drive program. Having known Terry and served under him as a member of the Hicksville Fire Dept, this is the type of person he was, a giving person. As I tried to explain to my then 7 year old daughter, right after Sept 11, “out of something bad, comes something good”.
